During the upcoming vote we will be deciding on the changes to the GP. As always, they are changeable if they turn out to be insufficient or wrong.
Basically, there are three categories:
1. Articles that will be deleted
2. Articles that will be deleted and replaced by a new article.
3. Articles that will be changed in part.
Most changes are the result of the transition to self-ownership. Factually that means:
1. We remove the founders from any administration of the site.
2. We introduce the positions of Ownership Representatives and assign duties and prerogatives.
The other changes are the result of reducing the number of members on the administration. The idea behind that is not so much the possible lack of appropriate candidates, but rather to make the community more aware, that self-ownership comes with the call to more self-accountability.
We own it, we pay for it, we make the content and we set the tone. This will no longer be a playground set up by Tom and Paul for whatever (changing) reasons they might have had, but a community place set up for reasons we should be aware of - because they are solely our reasons.
For your overview, I add the link below to a modified version of the GP. Articles to be deleted are formatted "strike through". Articles to be replaced are formatted red and strike through. Articles to be changed are formatted red with the changes worked in. I will post the replacements of category two articles in separate blogs.
All in all, we will have about 10 proposals to be voted on individually.

EDIT: With the help of A6, the document has now been purged of all terminology remnant of the old GP - but please do check again if you're so inclined.
